Those without a Tidal account can also watch the livestream of the concert, which takes place in Raleigh, North Carolina. And this isn’t one to be missed. The lineup features artists on Cole’s Dreamville, label like J.I.D, Bas, EarthGang, Lute, and Ari Lennox. Non-Dreamville artists—including Nelly, 21 Savage, SZA, Big Sean, Mez, Rapsody, Saba, Teyana Taylor, 6lack, and Davido—will also take the stage. Headlining, of course, will be Cole himself.
The festival also follows Cole's series of recording sessions for Dreamville's upcoming Revenge of The Dreamers III compilation album. In January, the who’s who of the rap game were invited to a rap camp, where the goal was to show the world he and the Dreamville family weren't a bunch of recluses. Revenge of The Dreamers III is expected to release sometime this month.
“I’ve been training for this. I get to be just a rapper, flex my rapper chops,” Cole told XXL. “Go jump in every room. If they’re doing something that’s hard, write a verse for that shit on the spot or just listen.”
